Associated Writing Programs in Minneapolis
We had a great time at the Associated Writing Programs conference in Minneapolis. Our topic, "Imaginary Writers: Who Are We Writing For?" drew a decent crowd of writers and students. With new means of measuring our readers, we can now work with publishers to pinpoint our potential audiences. It was great to see many of you. Left to right in the photo are Carmen Bernier Grand, Maria Lourdes Victoria, Kathleen Alcalá, and Donna Miscolta.
